What training offerings or resources does Vectorworks offer?
Due to varied learning styles, we offer a variety of training and resources to our new and longtime users. New customers can take advantage of a software purchase and training bundled offer. After a two-day training course, you’ll understand the basics of Vectorworks Designer, and you’ll be able to start designing. For those in the U.S., online one-on-one or group trainings can be purchased, or you can attend classes at our headquarters in Columbia, MD or attend classes at locations around the country throughout the year. We also have a number of other self-paced training options available for free, including our Getting Started Guides (http://www.vectorworks.net/training/2017/getting-started-guides) and videos through our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/vectorworks), so you can learn at your own pace.
